In December I started my goal of entertaining with my own cooking more often. We got new dining chairs in October which meant I could do proper sit down dinners again. I’ve been using leftover bottles from my festive cordial gifts to serve sauces in and it creates a great visual presentation.
Guests rise from their chairs reluctantly once we realise our chatting has continued until midnight – it sure helps that our new chairs are so comfortable. The dishwasher is stacked with smiles on our faces. I admire the haphazard beauty of dinner remnants left on the table – scattered napkins, half-empty glasses, the burnt out tea light candles, sauce spilt on the tablecloth and reminders of the people we’ve nurtured. My husband compliments me on yet another successful evening. I fall into bed exhausted but content.
